I usually write about yarn and books on Wednesdays but this week, I am a bit distracted. I can’t seem to get my needles settled on a project. I finished a hat and a shawl over the weekend. I acquired some lovely new yarn on Saturday. And I have spent a lot of time going through my library of patterns to find just the right project. I did start another shawl. And I have those sleeves waiting. But what I need is a simple enough hat that can be picked up between the cleaning and getting ready chores.
So, instead of writing about yarn and books this morning, I am going to tell you about my beautiful notebook. I bought this notebook last summer and started using it as my everyday carry in August. I have a wallet insert and two notebooks, one for daily jottings and one for special words and ideas. I have a dashboard folder with sticky notes and a place for stashing bits of paper. When I pull this lovely out at a store, I get a lot of oohs and aahs. This notebook has really helped me keep my purse and my brain in order. But I also love the story of this notebook and the maker. Rowena has created a lovely little community with her notebook making. This morning, I am going to open my notebook to check my to-do lists, jot down a few random thoughts, add some hat pattern names to my knitting wish list, and get my day in order.
